RAKTAKARABI~ BLOOD OLEANDERS: From My Congolese Times… Towards The Light Of Liberation


I am her ‘Madaame’ Of Everything  
ingrained in her rarity flashing ivory smiles    
to her ever red rising simmering eyeful suns  
in delicate armours of tearful hanging glistens  
that she unfallibly holds within the kohl  
black lashes that yearns to touch  
skyhigh liberating flights  
Yet,  mellowed down rustic  
earthen tones of perseverance  
she heavily bears forevermore  
as weighing down destiny..  in those  
simplistic mellowly beaming rays  
she sprightly blooms with…  
her vivacious pagne’s striking  
colours try vainly to digest in her aching  
darkness complexions &  deathly dark  
pangs of generational oppressions  
it surfaces as the dragging baritone  
of her drowning  in densifying voice that  
further wants to scream aloud farther..  
all those Manioc Cassava Fufu Dumplings  
are almost the mimicking maniacal monotones  
of a cheaply starchy carb food that are  
the enforced staple of a povery-stricken  
wartorn land .. miscreant(ly)~ (mis)designed  
by plundering cartels & dictatorships in labels  
of modern democracy...  scrapping them of their  
homely diamond gleams & mineral alchemy  
of golden Love in an eternally galvanising  
radioactive booming eternal spring fields..  
Her, the force of Nature in the militarizing  
language of power & arrogance & lies..  
My passage through Her Elusive Darkness  
feels an echoing motherly wombing depth  
of an abyssal sanctum sanctorum.. in  
labouring pains of her embryonic freedom  
of a primordial sunning One ~ Singularity  
that no meddling divisive middle men of  
dubious sophistications & but with inner~ spiralling  
in heady~ toxic crowns of insane greediness  
will ever succeed in their nefarious plotting  
It’s Her Time. Ever Been . Then & Now & Forever.  
its SHE,  Births The Light of Truth.  BRAVE NEW WORLD
